Hello Everybody,

We have one of our database(1.8 TB size) which is performing very slowly,

cache hit ratio= 28.7%

After checking I found the db_cache_size=32M and shared_pool_size=400M.

I changed the values dynamically for db_cache_size=4G and shared_pool_size=4G.
but still cache hit ratio= 28.7% and performance is very poor.

Oracle: 10.2.0.3.0
OS: Solaris 10 SPARC 64

Please suggest, this is really a crunch situattion.

Regards,
Maddy.

which of the above suggestions/ideas have you done & what were the results?

Buffer Cache Hit Ratio (BCHR) is a mythical indicator of performance.
In and by itself, it is a meaningless number.
Pl/SQL code exists that allows you to specify & obtain any BCHR you desire.

You've asked, "How do I tune a poorly performing application?".
The answer is "You tune one SQL statement at a time.".

Only rarely is there is single magic pill that makes everything OK after taking it.

Thanks for your reply Anacedent.

Actually this is a newly created, only 2 weeks old server.the database was earlier running on hpux and now migrated to solaris server.

Please suggest which parameters should we tune or look after.

Thanks.

has DBMS_STATS.GATHER_DATABASE_STATS been run against the Solaris DB?

>Please suggest which parameters should we tune or look after.

Hi

We have taken schema level statistics on solaris, not database level statistics.

Shall we go ahead and perform database level statistics using DBMS_STATS.GATHER_DATABASE_STATS.

Moreover optimizer_mode= ALL_ROWS.
Do we need to change it to choose.

Appreciate your response in this regard.

Thanks.

It can't hurt, but likely won't help.


>Moreover optimizer_mode= ALL_ROWS.
Why? Based upon what benchmarks?

If you really don't know what SQL is slow, you are simply shooting in the dark & hoping to get lucky that you find a "solution" before making a bad situation worse.

1)Run STATPACK/AWR for no longer than 15 minutes.
2)Identify the SQL statements consuming the most resources.
3)Analyze these SQL statements to see if/how they can be made faster.
4)Place the improved SQL into production
5) GOTO #1 & repeat this loop until you have Happy Users!

Choose any hit ratio

You don't use CHOOSE in 10g any more. CHOOSE used to choose between ALL_ROWS and RULE, but now RULE is deprecated, therefore so is CHOOSE.

Are you really need 4Gb for shared pool? or are you doing this out of desperation?

Check and tune your SQL statements (but you already got that advice).

did you apply any latest patch?

I suggest to apply recommended patch (forex: CPUJAN2008).
